We arrived at my mom in law’s tonight! She had tacos waiting for us. They are always good, but I think this time they were better than ever!
Mwako had to leave today. 😔 But before he did, we got to have one nice little goodbye breakfast together! 🌻 Then I was able to catch up on some housework, and in the late afternoon, Christopher and I played with LEGO again. It’s a really nice date night activity, and our partner even joined in for a little while after his nap. 🥰
🌞 First Watch Breakfast 🌞
I had never been to First Watch before! I wish we knew of it sooner. We really miss Metro Diner (ours shut down to become a funeral home, of all things) and this seems to be practically the same restaurant. Very similar menu and atmosphere. I can’t wait to have a little morning date with Christopher here.
I had avocado toast and grapefruit juice. The servings weren’t too big and the meal wasn’t otherwordly or anything, but it was good. I want to come again.
Mwako happened to snap a photo of me getting ready to snap a photo… 😄
I saw my friend off right after breakfast. Then I caught up on my blog and on my chores.
🚉 Date Night 🚉
After that came date night, and more LEGO fun was had! We put together our brand new freight train. Christopher was happier all throughout than I have seen him in a long time.
If I’d known how much he would enjoy this and how we would bond over it, I would have made it a priority in our lives and entertainment budget ages ago. I feel a bit sad in that regard over the lost time, but at least we can make up for it now.
Excited for the first test run!! 🚅
It’s really powerful and fast! 🤯
Here our partner took the controller. The scream is him. That, my friends, is the soundtrack of our lives, every day (and neither my husband nor I could live without it).
After this, they opened a pack of glow sticks that Mwako got for me as a little surprise and began to have fun with them…
I had to admit it looked pretty neat!
All in all it was a really wonderful day. I’m looking forward to having more fun this weekend!
Today Mwako and I stayed home! It was a more relaxing sort of day. After I finished all my chores, we watched cartoons, colored, and made bead necklaces. I also played some Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX while Mwako took a short nap, and then he watched me play for a little while. Below are some photos I took!
🌈 Coloring ‘n Cartoons 🌈
Cartoons and coloring was our first activity! We watched Courage The Cowardly Dog, and Mwako colored giant Bluey coloring pages while I worked on (finally!) finishing my squirrel page:
All done! This page took me forever. Now I have to laminate it.
At this point Mwako laid down for his nap. I played Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, and when he woke up again, he watched me play for a while. Then I did more chores and brought down all we needed to make stuffie bead necklaces!
🌈 Making New Name Necklaces! 🌈
I was overdue to make necklaces for Totodile, Beta, Ludwig, Soufflé, my pyroraptor Fajita, and my incoming polar bear, Igloo. I didn’t manage to finish them all, but I finished a few.
We had juice boxes and watched Franklin while having our fun with beads. Franklin is one of my all-time favorite “kiddy time” shows. Nothing makes me feel so small as watching this cartoon. It is so very lovingly done, and watching it on out giant CRT is a huge treat.
I know this CRT is on the way out, having occasional issues, and I have to say that now that the game room is looking so nice and neat, I really don’t want that to happen. 😞 I feel like I’d rather invest a little to keep it going longer. It doesn’t have the best picture, but it has that special something, particularly in this room.
Here is Mwako’s puppy, Patch, with his awesome new necklace!
And here he is showing off the page that he helped Mwako color:
For dinner I made panko-crusted chicken breast which turned out really good. I’ve started to add a little milk in my egg mixture for breading and the result is amazing. I went to bed fairly caught up with my chores.
Mwako goes home tomorrow, but tomorrow is date night. So it’ll be a day of chores and then spending time with my partners. By Friday I’ll be back to commission work!
Publix Cashier: “Ma’am, we need to see your ID for the wine.”
Me: Sighs, proceeds to open Jurassic Park kid’s backpack and take out Totodile so I can get my rainbow wallet out from under his butt.
Today was an amazing day. My husband and our partner took me on an ✨ extremely ✨ fancy birthday dinner at Komodo in Miami! I got to have their famous Pikachu drink. It really knocked me on my ass 😁
Every bit of food was incredible. I forget the name of my meal; honestly, I was drunk. But it was amazing. So were the appetizers, and the ambience.
My dessert was so pretty… 🎂✨
On another note we ordered Chipotle for lunch and of course our partner made my bowl name embarrassing… 🙄😒
